OOTD: Calling the Shots

The title of this post is inspired by the name of the lipstick I am wearing – Rimmel London Call the Shots. I have been incredibly busy these last couple of days, dealing with new clients and life in general. I almost didn’t have the take these outfit photos, but I was determined to find the time, against all odds. I believe when you want something so badly, you find the time for it. No room for excuses this year. I am calling the shots in my life!




Spring is here, and I am loving the sunshine we are getting. It is still more rain than sun, but I can’t complain. I made good use of the amazing weather by getting these photos taken. I hope the sunshine stays.





Every piece I have on is an “oldie but goldie”.  I got this black floral dress last year summer, and I have worn it a few times now. It is dead comfy and so easy to style; one of my current favourites. The brown faux leather jacket is also from last season’s collection, and so are the brown boots. If you are a regular reader, you would spot the black bag and sunnies, I have had them for donkey years, and they still look good.




This is the reason why I like to buy quality items. The more you spend on an item, the longer you have it, that is usually the case with me, especially when it comes to accessories – shoes, bags, jewellery and sunglasses. And that is the reason why I like to invest a little more in them, so they serve me for longer.

I also like to sell my old accessories on eBay, and bags do sell quite well on eBay.




What do you think of this look?

  1. Oh my gosh, if you’d like to share some of the sun with me that would be great cause it’s been lashing it down with rain every day in Manchester city centre haha! Love those old but gold pieces – I have a few things I can’t even consider getting rid of cause they’re such staple items!

  2. I love this look! I totally agree with buying quality items that stand the test of time in your wardrobe. I like to mix them up with cheap on trend bits to keep everything current. Kat x

  3. Beautiful outfit. I love the dress and the way it is paired up with the boots and jacket. Correct it is very good to buy quality that can be seen from your bag. Good, durable and still looking great.
